"In Germany, targeted wage subsidies to employers are an important instrument of active labour market policy. Targeted wage subsidies are tailored to particular groups of unemployed persons and typically granted for a limited period of time. In this paper, IAB compares the wages and tenure of previously unemployed persons who took up either a subsidized or unsubsidized job, respectively. The results show that starting wages of subsidized employees and unsubsidized workers are very similar, while - due to higher subsequent employment shares - cumulated incomes of (previously) subsidized workers are higher. Furthermore, initially subsidized workers have a longer tenure than persons who were hired without the help of a subsidy." (Author's abstract, IAB-Doku) ((en))
